RICHMOND, Va. -- Skies will be cloudy overnight with some showers around. Temperatures will rise into the low 60s this evening, lowering back into the 50s by daybreak.

A cold front will move through very early Sunday morning. There will be some rain around Sunday morning through midday in the metro, with rain chances lingering into the afternoon southeast of Richmond. Temperatures around daybreak will range from the mid 40s northwest to the mid 50s southeast. That will be the high for the day, as temperatures will settle into the 40s across the area, with gusty northerly winds.

Tranquil weather is expected for most of the coming week through next weekend. The wild card is a storm developing off the coast. If it tracks closer to the coast than currently expected, we may see some showers over the region.

In terms of temperatures, highs Monday will be in the upper 40s, with low 50s Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll cool back into the upper 40s Thursday, but then a warming trend is on tap for Christmas Eve and Day. Highs will be in the mid 50s Friday and potentially into the 60s on Saturday.

Mainly dry weather is currently expected for the holiday weekend.
